Hi
Im going to India from the 14th of May to the 23rd of June and seeks advice from some of you experienced travellers.
Would 1800 rupees a day be enough for accomondation, food and transport? I really dont mind staying at budget places or eating food from street stalls now and again.
I will fly to Delhi and then go to: Jaipur, Agra, Varanasi, Lucknow, Amritsar, Manali and then back to Delhi for the flight. Is this too much/less for 6 weeks? Im thinking it would be a good idea to go to up north in June because of the heat.
I am 20 years old and is travelling alone.
Hope to get some advice.
Regards
Magnus

Hi Magnus,

welcome to IndiaMike.
1800 is more than enough, you'll do just fine.
Going to Manali is a good idea and you might even consider going further to Leh.
You have piked some great spots to visit. If you can cope with the heat, which you will see once you are in Delhi, everything seems good to me.

Jaipur,Agra,Varanasi,Lucknow, & Delhi will be extremely hot, Manali would be mild.

Here are the datapoints for various cities in India
